I'm done! Well....kinda.....sorta.....maybe....

So my office is finally back together. My wife is very happy. However, I only met about half of my goal. My armies and models are better organized. For the most part, if I want to find something for my Orks, then I can find right where all the models are. I even organized my shelving so that all my 40K is on one shelf. My fantasy armies are all in those bins I have talked about previously.

Where I failed was that I didn't catalog everything. Basically, only the high elves and dwarves of my fantasy armies were cataloged. I didn't get to the undead, orc and gobs, wood elves and beastmen. Also, I didn't catalog my Warmachine or Spartan models either.

However, I did toss away quite a bit of trash, and I have a nice pile of stuff I want to get rid of completely. My office now feels a bit roomy actually. One of my shelves is mostly empty, which is good because there are plenty of unassembled models that need to go somewhere.

Oh, and one of my desks is now ready to be setup as a paint station once again. I just need to organize it a bit more.

My quest for playing in a real D&D campaign has yet to be fulfilled. I actually met with two different groups looking for a player. One collapsed at the last second due to a friend finally being able to join them (poor timing). The second was looking good. A test session had been done and plans of getting together again were mentioned. But upon further reflection, the DM considered it a poor fit. I tell you, finding a D&D group is hard. No hard feelings to either group. I left a group as well of my own accord because I realized it didn't fit what I wanted. Recognizing that is not always the easiest thing. Ah well. There is a glimmer of hope with some friends in the near future. I'm not going to hold my breath though. :)

March of the Eldar

Man, this is taking a lot longer than I had hoped....perhaps if I wasn't so lazy about it, it might actually go faster. So yes, boys and girls, I'm still plugging away ever so slowly on my collection. Recently cataloged was my eldar collection.

I've always liked the Eldar. I wish I had collected more of the rogue trader models back in the day. As it stands, I really only have a handful. I do have the original aspect warriors that were released, well most of them. I just really like the old models. So much character in them. The new ones are nice of course, in fact I think the Eldar are one of the best lines that GW has ever done.

You'd also think that maybe I would have some models painted. Unfortunately, I only have a handful done. A couple of years ago I started on them once again, with perhaps the hopes of doing a whole army's worth of models. As usual, my gamer ADD put and end to that. But you never know, perhaps I'll wonder back to them again.

Not as large as my orks, but a fairly sizable army I think. I also really need to start assembling more. Somewhere in the middle of that is a nice number of original harlequin models.

I think this finally wraps up my 40K armies. Next up should be the rest of my fantasy armies. Or...I may just pack everything away and come back later to cataloging. The wife unit wants her basement back. Until next time...
